One Life to Live had a peculiar experience. It set the record for the most lead actress wins. It won in lead actor twice. In 1992, it established having won in supporting actor. In 1994, it took care of winning supporting actress and younger actor. By 1983, it won directing more than any other soap—three times—until it was overtaken by The Young and the Restless. By 1994, it had won its second Emmy for writing. Despite its key wins, OLTL through the 1990s was nominated for outstanding drama series only twice—in 1973 and 1983. It did not get nominated again, for its third try at the best series Emmy, until 2000. The fact that OLTL finally won the top Emmy, in 2002, felt like a miracle.
OLTL was on for 43 years only managed 4 nominations and 1 win compare that to Santa Barbara which was on for 9 years, and got 4 nominations and 3 wins
OLTL never had luck in the acting categories except best actress
Al Freeman Jr. and Robert Woods – the only lead actor winners
Roger Howarth the only best young actor winner
Thom Christopher the only best supporting actor winner
Susan Haskell the only best supporting actress winner
OLTL never won in the best young actress categoryMay 4, 2021 at 12:26 pm #1204242452
Halle and Denzel 2002, and this is from someone who genuinely likes their performances in their respective moviesMay 4, 2021 at 11:30 am #1204242378
All of B&B’s young actor wins have been surprising because they never had a Jonathan Jackson, Tom Pelphrey, Chandler Massey caliber type of actorMay 4, 2021 at 11:08 am #1204242351
I was shocvked that Jacklyn Zeman lost to Rena Sofer in 1995! I love Rena but Jacklyn deserved it for B.J.’s death scenes so so so much more! Jacklyn was spilling secrets on her Soap Con Live! appearance this past weekend – telling it like it is!
one of the YouTube comments on her Emmy reel said that Sofer had more range on her reel than Jacklyn ZemanMay 4, 2021 at 11:06 am #1204242349
I guess I am the only one who didn’t care for Drew Tyler Bell’s reel and really thought Drew Garrett would win. EmmyLoser is right about the submissions – Drew’s for killing Claudia and Chad’s for the prison rape. I do wonder though whatever became of Drew Tyler Bell and Drew Garrett? They both left their soaps around the same time and I for one have never seen them in anything since then… (but I don’t watch a great deal of prime-time so maybe they have had guest roles I don’t know about…)
I must have forgotten this year
I had to go look up the rest of the nominees
My vote would’ve went to Zack Conroy or Drew GarrettMay 4, 2021 at 10:58 am #1204242338
The past few episodes have been tense
Stephen A Smith’s acting has gotten a little betterMay 4, 2021 at 7:57 am #1204242145
Jacklyn Zeman wasn’t even nominated for the BJ storyline and Brad Maule lost his only nomination for that storyline I know Justin Deas is a great actor, but did he really another Emmy. He already had four at that point
my apologies Zeman was nominated for Best Supporting Actress that year
I thought they should’ve submitted her for lead actress that’s why it felt like a snubMay 4, 2021 at 7:53 am #1204242141

Drew Garrett who played Michael on GH for the Michaels prison rape but I can see why Bell won. Bell was so good in those scenes. People have long wondered why Darrin Brooks won for Max on Days and his reel was good. I’ve never really questioned any of the Younger Actor wins. They were all deserving of you ask me from Brian Bloom to Kyler Pettis.
Yea it really hasn’t been a bad winner in the category
I was harsh on Jacob Young for winning for Lucky, but that was because Jonathan Jackson was still fresh on everyone’s mind as Lucky.
In hindsight he was pretty damn good; his Lucky was the complete opposite of Jonathan Jackson’s LuckyMay 3, 2021 at 10:27 pm #1204241689
I always felt that the academy knew that if they nominated Sweeney against the likes of Sarah Brown, Kimberly Mccullough, and Heather Tom she’d win easily and that’s why she was never nominated in the 90s. Hall definitely should have been nominated in the 90s. Now I do have to admit Drew Tyler Bell deserved his Emmy. Thomas’s outrage over Rick about Phoebe’s accident and preying on Steffy and sleeping with Taylor was everything. A lot of people don’t know what certain actors have picked for their reels and they wonder why they’ve won. Bell definitely deserved it. Zack’s death on Days was so heartbreaking no one got a nod for such a powerful storyline and it’s a Shame.
Who was the favorite to win when Drew Tyler Bell won his Emmy?May 3, 2021 at 10:26 pm #1204241686
I’ve always wondered about the directing award in 1993. As the World Turns won, but Guiding Light had submitted Ross’s Election Day dream, which was a stunning technical and artistic achievement and one of the most striking episodes of daytime ever produced. I don’t know what was on World Turns‘s reel, but I would have seen GL as an obvious choice.
Guiding Light only won two directing Emmys
I know one of the wins was for Frank and Eleni’s wedding.
I am not sure about the other one
The election episode should have won it was way ahead of its time.May 3, 2021 at 11:29 am #1204240871
I always thought it was ironic that Beverlee McKinsey didn’t get one nomination for her portrayal of Alexandra Spaulding on Guiding Light, but her recast Marj Dusay got a nomination her first year on the showMay 3, 2021 at 9:13 am #1204240554
Casey Moss losing the one time he was nominated, possibly one of the biggest Dool Snubs in emmy history. .
I thought he had the Emmy in the bag that night, and he a slam dunk reel.
I watched Rome Flynn’s reel a few times and I still don’t get itMay 3, 2021 at 7:33 am #1204240450
Yes, several – but particularly 1990-91 for the Kim/Bob/Susan triangle, and 1985-86 during the secret admirer storyline, and 1984-85 when Kim found her way back to Bob, and 1979-80 for Dan Stewart’s death storyline, and… truly she was always amazing!!!!
thats crazy she never got a nomination
not even a lifetime achievement awardMay 3, 2021 at 7:26 am #1204240437
I have said it many times on here but Kathryn Hays never getting an Emmy nomination (and really she ought to have won a time or two) for playing Kim on As The World Turns for 38 amazing years (1972-2010) is the biggest snub of all time! It was very odd that One Life To Live wasn’t nominated for Drama Series in 1994 – it ought to have been a tie between it and Guiding Light (All My Children was the winner, because they submitted the scenes around the racial hate crime attack in their reel – GL and OLTL split all of the other major awards that year and it was AMC’s only major Emmy win for 1993-94). And yes, OLTL ought to have been nominated far more often for Drama Series, Robin Strasser, Hillary B Smith and Kassie DePaiva all deserved far more nominations (and wins) than they got over the years. So many snubs for OLTL!
is there a particular storyline or year where you thought Kathryn Hays definitely deserved a win and nomination
